We really are rooting for this pair, they're just too cute.

Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are rubbishing claims that they've split up after his drug use confession last week with an adorable picture.

The Love Island winners reunited following her Comic Relief trip to Tanzania, after slamming reports that she'd moved out of their shared flat.

They appear to have put the rumours of trouble in relationship paradise behind them, as the pair share a cosy selfie cuddled up in bed.

Jack Fincham posted the snap to his Instagram story, captioning it, "Spilt tea down my front" with a gas face palm emoji. They're just too relatable, ain't they?

The pair denied reports that the 23-year-old daughter of Eastenders star Danny Dyer had moved her belongings out of their home after Fincham admitted to using cocaine.

The Sun published the comments he spoke, relating to submitting to peer pressure on nights out and Jack's deep regret at his actions.

She took to Twitter to write: "Sick of having to comment about my life! And people judging me and judging MY family. Nobody knows any facts or truth about me. Sick of people judging my relationship that they know nothing about. I don’t deserve any of this."

Jack retweeted Dani's statement and also wrote a piece for himself;

He wrote, "Please don’t read everything you read, I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other," before correcting himself, writing 'believe' instead of 'read'. LOL.

Dani has spent time in Tanzania before her upcoming charity climb up Mount Kilimanjaro later this month, saying her journey has "put a lot of things into perspective.”

The reality star will be joined on the climb by stars such as Strictly judge Shirley Ballas, presenter Alexander Armstrong and former politician Ed Balls.

Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer have both opened up after The Sun reported that the pair were now living separately following Jack's cocaine binge.

The Love Island couple have been through their fair amount of drama, but now it's heightened as Jack admits to taking a class A drug on a weekend with friends.

Dani's mother Jo was seen hauling a suitcase out of the duo's house in images obtained by the publication, with a source claiming that Dani and her family were "furious" at Jack.

Dani has denied this;

She took to Twitter to dissipate the claims, saying, "I can’t believe I’m commenting on a paper but when my family are constantly brought up I can’t bear it. MY family have done nothing but always love and support Jack through good times and bad."

She concluded, "So don’t send me messages and judge something you know nothing about." 

Now Jack has come out with his own statement on the matter, saying;

"Please don’t read everything you read , I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other , it’s a shame that this has been written as it’s so untrue." 

He later clarified that he'd meant to say "don't believe everything you read".

The 27-year-old told The Sun the other day that. "I'm in a new world of partying and stuff, and being in circles that I would never normally have been in."

He continued; "I'd never normally be in these situations but, yes, since winning the show I have been offered cocaine a lot."

Jack went on to say how much he regretted taking the drug during a recent night out with pals, and urged young fans not to follow in his footsteps;

"But I went out all night, I was drinking and I just got carried away and made a stupid, stupid mistake which I wish I'd never done, you know. I regret it."

Jack and Dani are doing just fine, judging by their tweets.

Jack Fincham has landed himself in some pretty scaldy water today after admitting to taking cocaine over the weekend, referring to it as a 'terrible, terrible error'.

The former Love Island star, who is loved up with fellow show winner Dani Dyer, has revealed to The Sun that he had a 'blowout' while clubbing with friends last Saturday.

He candidly said that he felt like he had to give in to the peer pressure and constant offers of drugs; "In the past I would never have found myself in a club where everyone wants to be your friend – but obviously they’re not really your friends at all," he claimed.

He spoke about the consistency of being offered free alcohol, compared to his past when he had to watch his bank balance;

“Before I couldn’t really afford to go out and drink all night with how expensive it is. But all of a sudden I’m being offered free drinks the whole night, getting more drunk than I ever would have been before and I’ve gone along with it.

He contined; "That night, it was a complete error in judgment. It’s a silly thing to do, it’s not something I’ve made a habit of. I mean, what an idiot."

“It’s not a reflection of my character, but I’ve had a blowout. It was a lapse in judgment, but it’s not something that I’ll ever do again.”


A post shared by Jack Fincham (@jack_charlesf) on

He confessed that Dani was disappointed with him when he told her the following day, and discouraged his young fans from ever following in his footsteps when it comes to drugs.

“I’ve told Dani, and obviously she doesn’t agree with anything like that at all," he said. “She doesn’t like all that. But obviously she’ll always support me."

"She said, ‘I’ll always support you, you made a mistake, we all make mistakes, but don’t ever do it again’. I don’t want to bring her into it, I’ve had a conversation with her and it’s not fair on her.”

Jack said Danny Dyer, Dani's father and veteran EastEnders actor, was likely to take "a dim view" of his actions.

"It will never happen again but I’m pretty sure any parent would take the same view on it," he insisted.

The co-founder and chief executive of the HQ Trivia app has been found dead in his lower Manhattan apartment yesterday morning, according to police.

Colin Kroll was found facedown on his bed after a woman rang 911 and asked for a police check-up in SoHo. Cocaine and heroin were discovered in his home.

Kroll also co-founded the formerly popular six-second video app Vine, which he sold to Twitter in 2012.

The app then closed down last year, and Kroll went on to work for Twitter before being fired for 'poor management' following allegations of inappropriate workplace behaviour towards women.


A post shared by Hollywood Tattle Tale (@hollywood_tattle_tale) on

When HQ Trivia debuted in August 2017, the app became a viral sensation after millions of people came together for a livestreaming-interactive game which inspired numerous imitations.

Anyone who participates has the hope of winning money from answering trivia questions on their phones.

Rus Yusupov founded HQ Trivia alongside Colin Kroll, and has yet to respond to his death.

The norm is that comedians host the game show on their phones, and the difficulty of the questions increases by the round.

The company raised $15 million in venture capital funding, but Mr Kroll's workplace history deterred many investors, yet Mr Kroll has always denied that he ever sexually harassed women at work.

In a statement to Axios, he said;

“It was a painful experience, but an eye-opening one that served as a catalyst for professional development and greater awareness in the office.”

He continued;

“I now realise that there are things I said and did that made some feel unappreciated or uncomfortable. I apologise to those people. Today, I’m committed to building HQ Trivia into a culture-defining product and supporting the dedicated team that makes it all possible.”

In an interview with The New York Times last year, the entrepreneur said the company preferred to be based in NYC instead of San Francisco.

The Detroit native said that;

"Our inspiration is more from media and TV than it is from technology.” Livestreaming gaming platforms such as Twitch inspired the creation of HQ Trivia.

Kroll had previously worked as an engineering manager for Yahoo from 2007 to 2009, and then as chief technology officer at Jetsetter from 2009 to 2013, so had a wealth of technological and software engineering knowledge.

The cause of Colin Kroll's death has yet to be revealed.


At this stage, most of us are aware of the adverse effects excess sugar consumption can have on our health, and while we may have great intentions to cut back, we always end up coming back for more.

So, what is it that makes the habit so damn hard to kick?

Well, according to researchers, sugar can be as addictive as cocaine, and they even suggest the sweet stuff should be considered a 'gateway drug'.

A recent study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, has shown that the consumption of added sugars can produce drug-like effects such as “bingeing, craving, tolerance, and withdrawal.”

The study's authors wrote: “Consuming sugar produces effects similar to that of cocaine, altering mood, possibly through its ability to induce reward and pleasure, leading to the seeking out of sugar.”

However, while these results might seem alarming to the sweet-lovers among us, other scientists have dismissed the research as simply “absurd.”

According to Indy100.com, Tom Sanders, emeritus professor of nutrition and dietetics at King’s College London, told The Guardian:

“While it is true that a liking for sweet things can be habit-forming it is not addictive like opiates or cocaine. Individuals do not get withdrawal symptoms when they cut sugar intake.”

So basically, while we could all benefit from having less of the sweet stuff in our lives, it doesn't look like we'll be checking ourselves into sugar rehabilitation programs any time soon.


Just days after her brother willingly placed himself at the centre of an internet furore, Kim Kardashian-West has inadvertently found herself in another.

And she's determined to remove herself from it as quickly as possible.

While sharing a series of images on Snapchat yesterday, the reality star became the subject of an 'is it/ isn't it' debate on social media after eagle-eyed followers spotted two lines of white powder in the background of her snaps.

With speed generally only seen when a rumour takes hold on social media, Kim was suddenly thrust into the limelight for all the wrong reasons, and she wasted no time extricating herself from it.

"Ohhhhhh @KimKardashian caught out with cocaine .. durtayyyyy," wrote one follower after spotting the suspicious substance.

"I do not play with rumours like this so I'm gonna shut it down real quick," the mum-of-two replied when confronted with the allegations on Twitter.

"That's sugar from our candy mess from Dylan's candy shop," she clarified.


My baby girl turned 4 years old today! She's my light & my everything!!! I love you to the moon & back North

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Unfortunately for Kim, not everyone is buying it, with many questioning the positioning of the powder.

"Why is she playing with candy on the bathroom counter? Why is said candy cut into lines? Those are lines in waiting," wrote one.

"You keep your sugar in cut lines? neat," added another.

Interestingly, Kim has since changed her story and returned to Snapchat to insist that the white lines were, in fact, a design on the marble countertop..

"Okay you guys, I just got back to my hotel room, And look at this table, same position. It is still there!" she said before proving that she had also been in Dylan's candy shop hence the confusion.

The plot thickens…


Yesterday, a video emerged of Made In Chelsea star, Olivia Bentley, snorting a suspicious white substance at a London party.

In the footage obtained by The Sun, Olivia is seen sitting at a glass table with three lines of white powder in front of her. An onlooker said she was taking cocaine, and was quite open about it.

The source said she was bragging about her life on MIC and said: "I'm on a TV show so people write sh*t all the time. I quite like reading the articles," while she rolled up a bank note. She then snorted one of the lines and licked her fingers.

The insider continued: "There were people she didn't know. I was shocked she'd do drugs in front of them. She'll regret it if she is booted off the show."

And now, a spokesperson for the E4 show told the MailOnline: "Olivia has been suspended from the show pending an investigation."

Olivia's representatives have refused to comment.


It's safe to say many of us are guilty of a few Jagerbombs on a night out, and for a large amount of us, a Vodka Red Bull is our drink of choice when we hit the dance floor.

However, new research carried out states that mixing highly-caffeinated alcohol with energy drinks can be as bad as taking a Class A drug.

The study was carried out by Richard van Rijn from Purdue University, which saw that the common combination can have a detrimental effect on your body.

"It seems the two substances together push them over a limit that causes changes in behaviour and changes the neurochemistry in their brains.

"We are clearly seeing effects of the combined drinks that we would not see if drinking one or the other."

The research also noted that people who drink the combination frequently will have a higher likelihood of using cocaine in the future.

We'll skip the Jagerbombs, so.



After serving a three-year prison sentence in a hard-core South American jail, convicted drug-smuggler Michaella McCollum has this evening returned to Ireland. 

The 23-year-old left Peru on Friday evening and landed in Dublin via London in the last hour.

Waiting media were on site to ask Michaella questions about her release, but the Northern Irish woman had no comment to make. 

Senior Newstalk reporter Sean Defoe captured the moment she walked from the terminal on Twitter.

Along with UK-national Melissa Reid, McCollum was arrested in August 2013 at Lima Airport with 11kg of cocaine hidden in their luggage and disguised as food packets. 

The Irish-woman was released on parole in March this year after serving less than half her six-year, eight-month sentence.

Reid arrived back to her native Scotland in June.

In a controversial interview with RTE shortly after her release, Michaella said the decision to transport drugs from Peru back to Europe was a "moment of madness".



Controversial Big Brother housemate Marco Pierre White Jnr has been charged with driving while high on cocaine.

The 21-year-old model, and son of the celebrity chef, faces being evicted from the reality TV show this evening.

His encounters with Laura Carter have already raised serious eyebrows this week – not least as he is currently engaged to fashion designer, Kim Melville-Smith.

According to The Sun, he now faces having to attend a hearing at a court in London next week.

Mail Online reports that Marco Pierre was stopped by police in Hammersmith, west London, on 20 April with more than 200 microgrammes of cocaine in his blood while driving a grey BMW X5.


It was a seemingly innocent celebrity-spotting snap that was deleted within minutes, but fashion editor Laura Craik says she has faced a "week of hell" as a result.

The writer experienced huge backlash online after she posted a photo of Cheryl Fernandez-Versini which accidentally appeared to link the singer to Class A drugs.

Laura's "impulse" photo, which showed Cheryl washing her hands in a bathroom at the British Fashion Awards last month, came under scrutiny as it showed what appeared to be three white lines on the glass counter next to the star.

Further investigation proved that the marks were most likely nothing more than the reflection of the lights above. However Laura says she was framed "as the villian" for posting the snap, despite having decided to delete the photo even before noticing the reflection and what it could be interpreted as.

"Back at my table, I opened Instagram in order to delete the picture from my feed. And that was when I noticed another detail, one that really was no laughing matter," she says in a piece published in the Evening Standard.

"Despite the fact that all my photo showed was a reflection on a mirrored surface — a chimera — the story rolled on all week.

"While this was upsetting, it was nowhere near as upsetting as the experience of being trolled, viciously, on Twitter, by an army of Cheryl fans who genuinely thought I had sold my picture in a bid to frame their idol as some sort of drug user."

Laura says she most definitely was no trying to capitalise on the unfortunate detail, and indeed had apologised to Cheryl via an email to her PR team within 12 hours of the photo being posted.

"Rather than working against her, I worked with her to get the picture banned, by signing over copyright.

"I didn’t make thousands selling it to a tabloid. I made a nominal £1 [€1.41]." 

Cheryl has yet to make any comment about Laura's explanation on social media.


If you've ever found yourself frantically demolishing a cheese board (with a glass of wine, of course) on a Friday night, it may not be discipline that's the issue, it's addiction.

While we all know that hard drugs like cocaine and heroin are highly addictive, you may be more surprised to discover that your mozzarella habit might be as difficult to beat as drugs. 

A study carried out by the University of Michigan set out to discover ‘the drugs of the food world.'

The reason cheese is so hooking is down to a protein called casein, which releases opiates called casomorphins during digestion.

Those casomorphins run riot with your dopamine receptors, triggering addictive elements in the brain.

Co-author of the study, Nicole Avena said: "This is a first step towards identifying specific foods, and properties of foods, which can trigger this addictive response."

"This could help change the way we approach obesity treatment. It may not be a simple matter of 'cutting back' on certain foods, but rather, adopting methods used to curtail smoking, drinking and drug use."
